The risk for workplace violence is too much for me
posted November 8th, 2018 at 5:47 AM
I am in a hard place as I enjoy working as building staff interacting with the tenants in a building in the DTES, but I hate how my employer downplays the risk for workplace violence. I have been threaten numerous times by street people and even had a needle pulled out at me and been stalked before by them. My employer is more concern about their brand and giving the tenants the false scense of security than upgrading the building's security and doing something about our safety. Calling the police is not much help and getting through VPD non-emergency at night is difficult to get a hold of. I decided that I will resign this January. I will miss the tenants, their pets, and my coworkers, but not the risk for violence.
